If you've listened to the radio or watched TV you've been inundated with the news that (gasp) -**it's FLU SEASON!!!!**
I don't mean to be a spoil-sport but I see an awful lot of media-hypnosis going on, and since it takes one to know one (you do know that I'm a clinical hypnotherapist, right?) I'd prefer that you ignore the slimy talk-yourself-into-the-flu kind of negative hypnosis that's here, there, and everywhere, and you lean into some good, juicy positive self-hypnosis. You know - where your mind/body connection boosts your immune system. It's simple. I promise. Here's how I do it. I use a Silva Method technique. When I see those flu commercials, billboards, magazines or hear them on the radio, I say in my mind "cancel, cancel, cancel" and see myself healthy and energetic. Simple and effective. Give it a whirl with the cartoon above! I think you'll enjoy it! Then, and this is the best part, do some real-time, pampering things so your body knows that you love and appreciate it. Just carve out 10 minutes for a bliss-filled nightly foot massage to stimulate acupressure points that increase the activity of the white blood cells that destroy invading viruses on contact. Plus it energizes other infection-fighting immune cells.
Whew, that was a mouthful--and so scientific! ;) It does work though and is so much more fun than feeling bad at this festive time of year!
Now that we've sick-proofed your holiday season what should we cover next week? Meditation? Dreams? Sacred Winter Rituals?
